I worked at Random House as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

Random House is fine, my co-workers were great, the general office atmosphere was friendly and supportive

Cons

As a temporary employee on a long-term open-ended contract there was absolutely no job security which became very terrifying when the contract was terminated. My direct manager was fine, but the department head was difficult to work with, if not possibly incompetent, or if they were competent and easy to work with, they did not present themselves as such to the team I worked on.

    Internship

    I worked at Random House as an intern

    Pros

    The internship program at Random House is a great introduction into the world of publishing. the editors really want to be involved and get their interns involved. The work environment is very friendly and a great place to be.

    Cons

    The only negative was that I was in one department the whole time and would have liked to get an idea of what happens in other departments. We were told we would be switched around but for the most part we all stayed in one place.

    Pros

    On the cutting edge of what's happening in the world, meeting with big names in our culture - both pop and academic. Day is flexible.

    Cons

    Pay is low. You have to put in a lot of time to advance.
